Our two hero products will have your skin summersoft no matter what the season. Whether dehydrated from too much sun, or too much time in central heating.
An amazing ritual is to take a warm shower or bath and melt the Idan oil in the warm water. Enjoy the warming aphrodisiac qualities of the Tuberose as you massage into clean damp skin, head to toe. (Skin absorbs more moisture when it is not fully dry.) When skin is dry take a small scoop of Shea butter and massage into problem areas like feet, cracked heels, elbows and knees. Wrap yourself in a fluffy robe and some cotton socks and you will wake up feeling brand new. Repeat weekly.
IVORY SHEA BUTTER (120ml)
Raw. One ingredient. Ethically sourced. Fragrance-Free. Vegan
Shea butter is the ultimate African beauty secret. Used for centuries by women to protect and regenerate the skin, its potency lies in its naturally high concentration of A and E.
A multi-purpose moisturiser for all skin types, it can be used on dry areas, stretch marks, scars, as a nappy balm, or as a base for making your own natural cosmetics.
Shea Butter is known for its high content of fatty acids and its naturally occurring content of Vitamins A and E. Traditionally used as a “cure all” balm and with women in Africa using it on everything from stretch marks and scars to babies' bums. An excellent natural alternative to petroleum jelly. All you need is a small amount, let it melt between your hands and apply everywhere - body, face, feet, and hands.

IDAN OIL (100ml)
Idan is the Yoruba word for magic, which is the only word to describe our sublime moisturising oil. Made with natural, cold pressed coconut oil into which a Tuberose flower has been immersed, ensuring the wonderful scent of this night-blooming flower is absorbed naturally into the oil by a traditional African process of enfleurage.
As well as smelling divine, Tuberose has naturally warming and aphrodisiac qualities. We love to use this for absolutely everything a body oil to leave-in hair conditioner, or if we are feeling really indulgent, slathering it head to toe before bed and rinsing off in the morning for truly silky fragranced skin. Some customers have even been known to decant it and use it as a solid perfume. Let us know what new uses you discover!

Absolutely in love with this oil. Now part of my daily routine 💕
I love my Indan Oil and Shea butter, a little really goes along way and it's the perfect treat for me to use when focusing on self-care. And they both smell gorgeous too!
I absolutely love the scent of the Idan oil, it is a real treat, leaving my skin smooth and smelling beautiful. I also love the Shea Butter, less extravagant, more down to earth... A suttle smell combined with a great moisturiser, super efficient on hands and feet, smoothing away dry skin and cuticules.
These two oils from countries I've never been and cultures that are not mine, make me feel super good!
Thank you xxx
Beautiful scent, stunning packaging and luxurious usage - The ultimate self-care treat! Thank you ladies, for creating a brand that embodies empowerment and supports wellness. I’ll be coming back for more!
I’ve loved these products from afar for some time and a friend gave me some to try and WOWOWOWOWOWOWOW. My skin is incredible, I’m 34 and have tried so much stuff over the years. It makes so much sense to me know how something so raw and natural can truly work wonders. The shea is magic on my face and skin, I use nothing else and can hand on heart say I am confident there is no going back. I committed to myself to love within and what I use on my face and body is an extension of that. Self love in a jar in a loving committed relationship with my skin by honouring its wisdom and beauty. Using traditional methods LIHA honours the wisdom of nature, sourcing from Africa adding nothing and keeping it pure and magic. I’ve mixed the idan oil with some solid smoky perfume I have, layering it for an even more divine smell. Thanks. Highly recommend.
